Iran today: Rouhani — know the enemy, don’t just shout about it

President-elect Hassan Rouhani said Monday that it was not enough for Parliament and politicians to speak against the enemy. Instead, Iran needed to know the enemy and its plans.

Reiterating a concept used in his campaign, Rouhani said that what was needed was “management” to help devise a response to the enemy’s plans, and that speaking and shouting against the enemy were “certainly not enough”.
